There's some timeless advice out there that you know is true but often don't follow, even when it comes from your trusted online psychic. These four pieces of advice are some of the wisest and hardest to put into practice. Once you do, though, life will be a lot smoother.
You Can Control Only Yourself
You may wish for a world where everyone thinks, behaves, and reacts exactly as you do. When people don't, you become annoyed and irritated. You expect others to be the way you are and start going about the impossible task of trying to change them. But everyone views the world differently, and you're just setting yourself up for frustration.
How many times have you heard that you can't change others — you can only change yourself and your reactions to others? It's a simple piece of advice that, once you get it, will make your life and all the relationships in it so much easier.
Change Your Thinking
"What you think, you become," spoke Buddha. "Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve," said Napoleon Hill, author of "Think and Grow Rich." Life doesn't just happen to you. You create your reality. Every day you make choices that lead to actions, and it all starts with your thoughts.
Depending on whether your thoughts are positive or negative, your life will follow suit. However, changing long-established patterns of thinking is tough. First, become aware of your thoughts and then consciously replace them with positive ones. It will take some time, but the effect on your life will amaze you.
Worrying is a useless pastime. It solves nothing. All it does is give you sleepless nights and drain your energy. In the meantime, life goes on, and every day sees to itself in one way or another. Yet many can't stop the habit of fretting about every little problem.
A better way to expend your energy is to find a practical solution to a problem. And if you can't solve it, worrying isn't going to change that. Whatever you're going through will pass. When it comes to minor issues, remember another piece of good advice — don't sweat the small stuff. Spend more time enjoying life than worrying about it.
For most fallible humans, forgiveness is hard. When someone does you wrong, it's easy to hang on to the hurt and remain trapped in anger and bitterness. You expect someone to apologize for their wrongdoing, and when they don't, you seethe inside and malice creeps into your heart.
Hanging on to toxic emotions harms you, not the other person. Forgiveness is, therefore, the best thing you can do for yourself. It sets you free to continue living a happy life. After all, the person who wronged you is going about their life without giving it a second thought. So why spend your days dwelling on them?
It's always easier to give advice than to receive it. But if any good advice like these come up in your next psychic phone reading, take heed. Sometimes the best advice is hard to implement but will ultimately improve your experience of life.
